“Oops! … I did it again. I played with your heart. Got lost in the game. Oh, baby; baby.” – Britney Spears
When you think of Britney Spears, what come to mind? Great Music? A Pretty Girl? Crazy Woman? A Crazy Wife? Crazy Mom? Victim of Success? Whatever came to mind first this is not a gossip blog so it has nothing to do with those thoughts. Britney Spears is famous for a number of reasons, including her musical talent, and person public issues. But she is not notarized for the wisdom in one of her earliest hits. The song was clearly not meant for a motivational blog, but it should have been.
How often have you thought about a goal or dream, thought about it so much that you could taste it. How often have you fantasized about your dreams, and aspirations and felt like you were within arm’s reach of making a significant step toward it How often have you been in this situation, and had something “tragic” take place that completely threw your plans off-balance. How often have you allowed life’s circumstances to completely change your focus, and deflate your motivation for achieving your dream? When this happens, you might as well say to yourself “Opps, I did it a again, I played with your heart, Got lost in the game, Oh baby, baby.” Quite frankly this is what happened to you, you lost the ability to focus on your goal, got lost in the game of life, and thus played with your heart again as your heart is the pulse of all of your dreams.
The next time life throws a “monkey wrench” into your plans of success, prosperity, and realization of dreams don’t let it throw off your plans. Don’t allow life’s prevailing circumstances, to predict future outcomes. Use the setback, as energy to push harder, learn from the error that caused the setback, take evasive action to avoid it in the future and focus on what is going to be YOUR REALITY. You and only you control the outcome of your reactions, circumstances have multiple variables that create outcomes those of which you may not be able to contorl. However, how you handle situations is 100% controlled by you. So take control of your life so you don’t have to play this song in your head again when life gives you a setback. YOU ARE DESTINED FOR GREATNESS; YOU MUST BELIEVE IT THEN ACHIEVE IT.
Be GREAT at what you do today!
